Tlie iiiforniatlon iias gotten to th'> present "Ins" at the state hoiis.'. and the majority has handed down a verdict .that "he is the really dangerous man i to the cause." Bristow is to be pushed on the theory that he has friends in high p'aces at \\\u<!hington that he is a Taff boomer of the first water, (hat he and Stubbs are the only really available men to make a flfht for the nomination against a hard opposition. This is to clear the way fol- Stubbs to sac riflce fifmself enttre'y to the race for senator. DISCHARGE DRAKE'S GUARDIAN Humboldt Man is Being '^aken Care of by Friends. nr. .1. F.

O O O ooooooooooooooooo cotton futures, except that it is aimed at grain gambling. Seott and Iiurle- son. although the latetr is a deniocra! and the former a reimblican. are acting together. The committee on agriculture, to which both measures havr been referred, either will combine thp two or will report both favorably and ask for early consideration. The alliance botwoen the democrat ifoiii Texas ant! the republican from Kansas to effect a great imblic pur- )> is the forerunner and concrete indication of a combination already l)eing formed between the South and West to protect their mutual interests from the corporation-controlled East- '•rn men iu both ho\ises. The Western grain men and the Southern cotton [irodncers are convinced that the price of their products arc beaten down by the gambler.s. They are determined that in fighting the g-.imbling evil they will put their cause above party consideration or considerations of jier- .sonal jiolitieal Interest. If they find that they can stop gambling in wheat, corn cotton and other products of thf soil they believe they will «>pen the way to sto |i gambling in stocks and bonds. This subject is so intimately connected with the financial Jiuestipn that Southern and Western men arc disposed to consider the two together. Cotton and grain gamblers are great ly alarmed over the pnispect of this legislation and are combining to ofi- jHise It. The cotton exchange of New York has issued a call to the Cliicago iKiard of trade and all other lioards of trade in Western cities to unite in an effort to save themselves by jirevent- Injr the passage of the several bills intended to wli)e them all out of existence.

It is rumored that Mr. WSieaton'fi attomej-d will ask for their client's release nn a writ of habeas corpus on the prounda that there is not sufficient evid?nce to hold htm. Mr. Oyler declines to give out a definite statement as to the correctness of the rumor as he is not chief counsel in the case. .Mr. Dallicy's Sister Was .Harried Last Evening.. .Oilieers ConOscated "Boiizc."
